Artists brush away the years THIRTY years ago, 24 Mornington Peninsula artists decided to open an art gallery, with enthusiasm easily exceeding experience. Now, The Guild Art Gallery, Tyabb, run by its member artists as a collective, is celebrating its 30th anniversary. The gallery sells framed and unframed paintings by many awardwinning artists. They are of various subject matters and different styles. As the artists oversee the gallery, the paintings are said to be “reasonably priced”. The gallery is at the rear of Tyabb Packing House Antique Centre in The
Village. It is open 10am-5pm, Thursday to Sunday and public holidays. Entry is free.
Planning for 150th HASTINGS Primary School is planning a week of activities in March next year to celebrate turning 150 years old. The celebrations will begin Monday 21 March with activities culminating on Saturday 26 March. A small group is now busy gathering photographs and information on the various stages of the school’s history with more members of the school
community invited to get involved. “We are looking for some guest speakers from among previous students or teachers who can talk about ‘What it was like’,” business manager Barb Evans said. “We would like to create a museum of historical items from different eras.” Ms Evans said current students would depict different eras, such as through movement and dance, how they got to school, and what was eaten for lunch, as well as other points of interest. The group meets once a fortnight at the school. Those wanting to get involved can call 5979 1517.
